What is Fasenra?
Fasenra (benralizumab) is a medication that works through the immune system to help control severe asthma. It is used in conjunction with other medications to treat severe asthma in adults and children who are at least 12 years old.
Fasenra is a monoclonal antibody. Monoclonal antibodies are produced in a lab and target specific antigens in the body. Therefore, Fasenra can be described as an immunotherapy treatment for asthma.
Fasenra has been available since 2017 in a prefilled syringe administered by a doctor. In 2019, a new auto injector was approved for home use by patients.
Fasenra can cause side effects, some of which can be serious. Allergic reactions are rare but can require immediate medical attention in the case of breathing difficulty, swelling in the face or throat, or rash/hives.
What does Simplefill Provide?
For those struggling with a chronic condition, the stress of ever-increasing prescription drug costs can make effective treatment even more difficult. Managing a chronic and potentially life threatening condition such as asthma does not have to be made more stressful by worries about not being able to pay for essential medication.
Simplefill searches all available U.S. patient assistance programs to find the ones you are likely to qualify for and that will save you the most on your Fasenra prescription.
How does Fasenra Work?
Eosinophilic asthma symptoms are caused by an overabundance of eosinophils (white blood cells) in the blood and in phlegm in the lungs. The monoclonal antibodies of Fasenra attach to receptors on the surface of the white blood cells. This interaction causes the immune system to kill eosinophils in the lungs, thus reducing inflammation and asthma symptoms.
